My SOA Books

I have my stack of books ready!

Heart of the Matter  – Emily Giffin

Just finished it.  Her 5th and latest book.  You cannot go wrong with this one.  She started with Something Borrowed and I’ve been reading her ever since.

Don’t You Forget About Me – Edited by Jaime Clarke

It’s a book on the films of John Hughes written by contemporary writers.  This one found its way into my stocking last Christmas and I’ve yet to read it.

Carrot Cake Murder and Apple Turnover Murder – Joanne Fluke

I’m such a huge fan of cooking mysteries.  Blame it on Diane Mott Davidson.  I love her books!  One Christmas, when her new book didn’t hit around Christmas-time, I was gifted a Joanne Fluke book.  She’s no Diane, but still pretty darn entertaining.

The Pillars of the Earth – Ken Follett

I was recommended this book by a dear friend last year and I finally checked it out from the library today.  Fingers crossed!

The Dream Book – Yehuda Berg

I am fascinated by my dreams.

The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts – Lilian Jackson Braun

This is only one of 30 “The Cat Who…” books about Jim Quillaram and his two cats, KoKo and YumYum.  The women in my family started reading “the cat” books when I was still in my teens.  We all love them.  Ms. Braun passed away in June of this year, so I thought I would reread them all.

Brilliant – Marne Davis Kellogg

She is my new (to me) favorite. I started this one last night.

Pearl in the Mist – V.C. Andrews

Apparently, I missed the V.C. Andrews bus during the 80s.  I’m enjoying catching up lately.

The Happy Hollisters and the Merry-Go-Round Mystery – Jerry West

Before I was into Nancy Drew, I love the Happy Hollisters.  I’ve been looking for these books every time I go into a book store and can never find them.  I actually came across this one in a thrift store the other day.  Can’t wait to share this with my kids.  When I’m finished reading it. 🙂

The Bobbsey Twins in the Country – Laura Lee Hope

Another childhood favorite.  Found this one when I found the Happy Hollisters book.

Sacred Sins – Nora Roberts

I love Nora.  I hadn’t read this one and found it on my bookshelf.  That is all.

  1. Ooooh……that’s a good stack of books.
    You’re cracking me up with your V.C. Andrews. I remember ‘Flowers in the Attic’……soooo…….how do you even describe that book?

  2. Hi there! I just came across your post mentioning the Happy Hollisters and wanted to let you know that 8 of the original 33 volumes are back in print. They were written by my grandfather, Andrew Svenson, using the pseudonym Jerry West, and were based on the real-life adventures of his family (my father, aunts, and uncle). We started reissuing them in paperback and eBook formats in October 2010, and intend to release several more each year until the whole series is available once again. If you’d like to learn more about the project and the “real” Hollister family, check out our official website, or join us on Facebook:
    Or feel free to contact me directly with any questions or comments!
    Thanks for remembering The Happy Hollisters!
